Greetings everyone,

Happy Ebertfest week! In between screenings (and while everyone else is off wasting precious movie watching time eating dinner) you can race home and watch more movies. There were a few big releases this week: "Crazy Heart" (w/Jeff Bridges -- winner of the Oscar for Best Actor), "The Lovely Bones" (dir: Peter Jackson; w/Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz) and "The Young Victoria" (w/Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend). Also, on Thursday, "Avatar" will be released (we should have both DVD and BluRay by then). There are a few non-blockbusters that stand out, too: "35 Shots of Rum" (France/Germany, dir: Claire Denis), "Beeswax" (dir: Andrew Bujalsk of "Funny Ha Ha" and "Mutual Appreciation" fame), and "Italian Straw Hat" (1928, dir: Rene Clair). On BluRay there are three new Criterion titles: Nicholas Ray's 1935 "Bigger Than Life", Olivier Assayas' "Summer Hours" (w/Juliette Binoche), and Jean-Luc Godard's "Vivre sa Vie".

The 12th Annual Roger Ebert's Film Festival (aka Ebertfest) kicks off Wednesday with the sold out screening of Pink Floyd's "The Wall". At least five of the 13 films being shown are sold out. Hurry and get tickets for the rest if you want to see them. Also, Parkland College is showing Justine Nagan's "Typeface" on Wednesday, April 21st at 7:00 with a panel discussion afterward. More information can be found on their website.

Don't forget, C-U Bike to Work Day is Tuesday, May 4. Get you bike out of the garage, tune it up, and start planning your route. More information (including a pdf of the CU Bike Map and tips for commuting) is available on-line: www.ChampaignCountyBikes.org

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
